Daily Prompt: Perspective

Think about something that drives you crazy. Now, think about something that makes you happy. Does it change your perspective on the former?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us a PERSPECTIVE.

Does mood change perspective? Or is it perspective that changes mood? I’m inclined to go with the second.

Stick me in a room with nothing else but my worries and they engulf me and gobble me up for breakfast. Pull me out of there and surround me with other people and their problems and I soon start counting my blessings.

Other people’s perspectives also help. A curt “Yes, but” or a (more delicately phrased) “Get over yourself” is like a glass of water flung in the face. It leaves you gasping, but sober.

So yes, a fellow motorist letting me into the stream of traffic might cheer me up a little on a Monday morning, but it won’t change my attitude to toll roads. Whereas, if I were elected to parliament and told that five per cent of every toll paid would go into my back pocket … well then, that would be a totally different story, wouldn’t it?
